I Hate Clowns—I Hate Barons
If you only would see one Lon Chaney Sr. movie this should be the one.This is acting at a level rarely equaled.The cast is magnificent,the story sad and poignant, and the ending among the most memorable of the many silent classics.The soundtrack is a fine accompaniment to this film,if at all possible try to find a copy with it.The man can ACT!

"Your sorrows are over, Consuelo"
Another great Lon Chaney performance in which he portrays a tortured character. This time he's a circus clown bent on revenge. He redeems himself by killing the father of the woman he loves. (Wait, what?)
